Cleaning your home without chemicals
Many of us are looking for non toxic, chemical free cleaning solutions. By incorporating Essential Oils into your cleaning regime, bacteria, viruses, mould and fungus can be eliminated without harsh chemicals, that are harmful to your skin and lungs.
During this month, I have been hosting “How to clean with Essential Oils” mini classes at the Farmer’s Market.
Below I’d like to share three of the recipes from my mini classes. For more recipes and ideas, take a look at my Fab 5 for Cleaning.
3 Cleaning with Essential Oils recipes
1. Fruit and Veggie Wash
Combine 1-2 drops of Lime or Wild Orange Essential Oil to a 1/4 cup bicarb of soda. Add to a sink or tub full of water and give your fruit and veggies a decent wash.
Rinse with clean water and pat dry before storing.
2. Simple Toilet Spray
It really is a simple spray…
Add 3-4 drops of Purify Essential Oil to a small, dark coloured, glass spray bottle. Top up with water.
This is an absolute smell buster in my home. I’m referring to my neighbour, he smokes on his balcony, right outside my bathroom window. But it works well for other smells too 😉
3. Chemical Free Surface Spray
It is always advisable to use dark, glass bottles to store cleaning solutions that contain Essential Oils. This is to protect the oils from getting damaged by light. Also if you are using citrus oils, they can eat through plastic, so glass is best.
